  • pose yourself and photograph you

    or pose yourself in front of a mirror”practice drawing fruit. the body is just a bunch of shapes put together, like anything else.

  • you have to look at the picture very carefully, the details make the image. You got to get the proportions right and this is the most difficult part. Practice makes perfect and you know it, just keep on drawing the same person you see over and over again and compare each new drawing with its previous.

  • Go to your local library and ask your librarian to help you find life drawing books. They should have several to choose from.

    (Classic Human Anatomy is a very advanced book. Too complex for now.)

    Let me know if this helps.
